Well this is not great news to start a new season. The MRI that was done on Ed Davis revealed a tear in his meniscus. It required surgery that was performed this morning in a Toronto hospital. This will rule the Raptors 13th selection out for training camp, pre-season and most likely the first couple weeks of the season. Normal recovery time for this injury in a minimum 6 weeks.
Needless to say this is a set back in his development and he missed a good part of last season with UNC for an unrelated injury but you have to wonder is this just one of those guys that has bad luck in terms of injuries. See Greg Oden who is the poster boy for this type of thing. While the Raptors have plenty of depth to handle the lose it is more a case of the setback in the development of the rookie.
Paul Marks the Raptors team medical director and orthopaedic surgeon performed the procedure. Raptors will have Media Day a week from today on the 27th and open camp in Toronto for a few days before heading out to camp in Vancouver. It would seem unlikely Davis would make that trip with the team. Just another blow to what has been one of the worst off-seasons in franchise history.
